Adrienne Warren will reprise her role as Tina in “Tina — The Tina Turner Musical” on Broadway.
Warren is currently playing the role on the West End and will come with the show to Broadway this fall. The exact theater, dates and additional casting for New York has not yet been announced.
“I’m so proud of everything that Adrienne has achieved over the last year in the West End. She has given it everything she’s got, she has poured her soul into it, and she deserves every success. I am thrilled she will be reprising her role in New York, and I cannot wait to see her on that Broadway stage on Opening Night,” Tina Turner said in the press release.
Warren previously appeared on Broadway in “Shuffle Along,” for which she received a Tony nomination, and in “Bring It On.”
The musical premiered on the West End in April 2018, with Warren as the lead. It is currently selling tickets through Dec. 21, 2019.
The biopic musical, produced by Turner and Stage Entertainment, was written by Katori Hall and Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins and directed by Phyllida Lloyd.
